Trusona and Carahsoft Partner to Aid Public Sector Compliance with Newly Enhanced Cybersecurity Requirement

Innovative Passkey-as-a-Service Platform Now Available to the Public Sector on Carahsoft SEWP V Contract

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. and RESTON, Va. — August 30, 2023 —Trusona, the pioneering leader of passwordless authentication, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Trusona’s Master Government Aggregator®, making the company’s industry-leading passkey-as-a-service platform, Trusona Authentication Cloud, available to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint, OMNIA Partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts.

Passkeys are a convenient alternative to vulnerable options, such as passwords and one-time passcodes (OTPs), that enable faster, more successful and secure sign-ins across all devices. Passkeys are phishing-resistant, much easier to use and eliminate many of the password reset frustrations and costs. According to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), passkeys are poised to become the “gold standard” of authentication for the internet.

Passkeys have become widely adopted and are supported on billions of devices – including smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Trusona Authentication Cloud allows Public Sector organizations to deploy passkeys to their websites and achieve MFA compliance with phishing-resistant security. Since passkeys remove the need for legacy 2FA methods such as SMS OTP, agencies can reduce their SMS transaction spend by as much as 50%.

“We’re delighted to partner with Carahsoft and its resellers to bring our solutions to the Public Sector,” said Ori Eisen, CEO of Trusona. “Through this partnership, we will help Government organizations comply with new security mandates and significantly reduce their SMS costs.”

“By adding Trusona’s offerings to our portfolio, we are now able to provide our Public Sector customers access to next-generation multi-factor authentication and phishing resistant capabilities,” said Steve Jacyna, Director of Emerging Cyber at Carahsoft. “Public Sector organizations are currently engaged in a Government-wide effort to improve cybersecurity infrastructure and meet enhanced security regulations. Through collaboration with Trusona and our reseller partners, we can support this initiative and supply the Public Sector with affordable solutions that minimize risk and maximize security during the identity authentication process.”

Trusona’s solutions, including Trusona Authentication Cloud, are available through Carahsoft’s ITES-SW2 Contract W52P1J-20-D-0042, NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement #AR2472, The Quilt Master Service Agreement Number MSA05012019-F and SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B.  For more information, contact the Trusona team at Carahsoft at (703) 871-8548 or
